  • Rather's Lawsuit Shows Role of G.O.P. in Inquiry

    When Dan Rather filed suit against CBS 14 months ago -- claiming, among other things, that his former employer had commissioned a politically biased investigation into his work on a "60 Minutes" segment about President Bush's National Guard service -- the network predicted the quick and favorable dismissal of the case, which it derided as "old news." So far, Mr. Rather has spent more than $2 million of his own money on the suit. And according to documents filed recently in court, he may be getting something for his money. Using tools unavailable to him as a reporter — including...
  • Mary Mapes knew Bush volunteered for Vietnam: CBS report

    This story by Bernard Goldberg certainly takes me back to the early days of my blogging career. Shortly after the 2004 Republican convention, Mary Mapes produced a segment for 60 Minutes II that alleged that George W. Bush had manipulated his enlistment in the Texas Air National Guard to avoid serving in combat in Vietnam. The documents used by CBS, Mapes, and Dan Rather turned out to be clumsy hoaxes, which the blogosphere exposed through careful review of their substance and their form (the latter of which I played a small part in refuting, with my expertise in printing and...

    What was supposed to be friendly territory grew heated in a CBS interview with President Obama that aired Sunday night, showing a contentious debate between Obama and a network correspondent. In a wide-ranging, 24-minute interview that covered domestic and foreign policy, it was the Middle East that produced the most fireworks between Obama and '60 Minutes' reporter Steve Kroft. Kroft repeatedly challenged Obama's strategies in Syria and against the Islamic State in the region, accusing the president of 'embarrassing' failures and a lack of leadership. Obama defended the U.S. mission in countries like Syria and Iraq and said better results...

    On the eve of the first Democratic presidential debate, President Obama is downplaying Hillary Rodham Clinton’s use of a private email server to conduct government business, saying she made a “mistake” but didn’t endanger national security. “I think she’d be the first to acknowledge that maybe she could have handled the original decision better and the disclosures more quickly,” Mr. Obama said in an interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes” broadcast Sunday night. “I don’t think it posed a national security problem. It was a mistake that she has acknowledged.” When interviewer Steve Kroft pointed out that the administration has prosecuted...

    Veteran newsman Dan Rather says Donald Trump could be headed to the White House. "I don't think it's outside the realm of possibility he gets elected," Rather, former "60 Minutes" correspondent and "CBS Evening News" anchor, told The Hollywood Reporter. "I said in the beginning he's not going to go away quickly. He isn't going to be the shooting star that goes away. "Because whatever else you think of Donald Trump, he is smart, he's very television smart. Donald Trump certainly has a good shot at the nomination. But Rather believes Trump must provide many more details on his ambitious...

    President Barack Obama got “feisty” during an interview about Russian President Vladimir Putin, as one CBS News anchor put it. In the interview, set to air Sunday on “60 Minutes,” Obama immediately pushed back from reporter Steve Kroft’s line of questioning about America’s leadership around the world, particularly in the Middle East. “A year ago, when we did this interview, there was some saber-rattling between the United States and Russia on the Ukrainian border,” Kroft said. “Now it’s also going on in Syria. You said a year ago that the United States, America leads, that we are the indispensable nation....

    Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina is rebutting a Washington Post story that details a pattern of delayed payments to staff and contractors after her 2010 Senate campaign in California. According to the piece, Fiorina, the wealthy former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, waited until January, a few months before announcing her 2016 presidential bid, to settle most of the more than 30 invoices outstanding from her last campaign - a total of about $500,000. She was quicker to reimburse herself the $1.3 million she lent the campaign. Fiorina, when asked about the article Monday, dismissed it. "You know I don't think the...

    The classic definition of chutzpah — the guy who murders his parents and then begs for mercy because he’s an orphan — is getting a rewrite with the Oct. 16 release of “Truth,” a movie that insists forged documents are real. Robert Redford, who makes no effort whatsoever to look or sound like Dan Rather, plays the CBS newsman undone after he presented to the public obviously forged documents about then-President George W. Bush’s Texas Air National Guard service in the early 1970s.

    In March, an investigation by ProPublica and Gawker revealed that a “secret spy network” that was not on the State Department payroll, run by longtime Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal, was “funneling intelligence about the crisis in Libya directly to the Secretary of State’s private account starting before the Benghazi attack.” Now the WEEKLY STANDARD has learned that Tyler Drumheller, the former chief of the CIA’s clandestine service in Europe who was working directly with Blumenthal as a member of Clinton’s spy network, was concurrently working as a consultant to CBS News and its venerable news program 60 Minutes.

The unhinged far-left interviewer, Scott Pelley, may have been born in Texas but he's not a true Texan because he rejected the Conservative Christian (and Jewish) values of the Lone Star state. Since Pelley (like Dan Rather, Walter KKKronkite and Egbert R. Murrow) is a limp-wristed metrosexual who hates America, it's great to see him getting TRUMPED! Go Trump go! Attack! Attack! Attack!

"So, my view on this is, we have to learn things. And we are always learning. We learned after Beirut. We learned after Tanzania and Kenya. We have learned after Benghazi, but we're not going to be able to represent the United States working out of hermetically sealed tanks. We are going to have to be out in the world."...

That’s up by nine percentage points since 2009, when only 66 percent felt that way. So it’s no surprise that a populist revolt is in full swing. Bernie Sanders, a socialist who rails against government ties with Wall Street, is leading front-runner Hillary Clinton in Iowa and New Hampshire. Three Republicans who have never held office — Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina, and Ben Carson — are way ahead of veteran GOP governors and senators in the race for the...

Truth, director James Vanderbilt's drama about the "Memogate" scandal that ended Dan Rather's CBS News career, was touted as a world premiere at Toronto. Rather himself turned up at the event to praise the film's accuracy and its (very sympathetic) portrayal of him. CBS mostly comes across as the villain in Truth, with news chief Andy Heyward appearing to fire Rather (Robert Redford) and 60 Minutes...

Launched back in 1966, the series and the property as a whole has since become a cultural institution and five spinoffs, dozens of movies and a successful reboot in 2009. However, since JJ Abrams turned Star Trek around and made into a broader appealing property, fans of the series have felt somewhat neglected. There hasn't been a Star Trek-related TV series since Enterprise - which was cancelled unceremoniously in 2005 after just four seasons. All previous spinoffs hit seven seasons. There's been constant rumblings and...

Veteran CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller asked him if such a uniform ban would affect the president "adversely." Since the 2008 presidential campaign, Obama has been known for his reliance on tele-prompters to deliver speeches and often rambles without one. "I don't have any … well … that's a tough one to respond to," Earnest admitted amid some...

As we have seen, the networks declined to report that their CEOs including CBS CEO Les Moonves who earned over $54 million this past year were "overpaid." Perhaps they were embarrassed to report this. However, even more embarrassing is that Moonves is so cheap that he used a big wad of hundred dollar bills to stiff a restaurant parking valet out of a tip as you can see in the video on the Page Six report of the New...
  • Schieffer: ‘We Now Don’t Know Where People Get Their News’

    WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — The legendary Bob Schieffer is calling it a career Sunday as he hosts his last “Face the Nation.” Schieffer joined CBS News in 1969 and in that span he covered the White House, State Department, Pentagon, Capitol Hill, anchored the “CBS Evening News,” and hosted “Face the Nation” the past 24 years. Washington has changed dramatically when he began covering the nation’s capital. Schieffer told “CBS This Morning” on Friday that the “revolution in communications” has turned D.C. “upside-down.” “We now don’t know where people get their news, but what we do know is they’re bombarded with...
  • How James Patterson's novel 'Zoo' became a series on CBS

    No need to head to the multiplex for big action, special effects and hair-raising thrills, says bestselling author James Patterson, when the CBS adaptation of his novel, "Zoo," promises all that — and rampaging wildlife, to boot. "It should give the summer movies a run for their money," said Patterson, a populist literary star perhaps best known for his Alex Cross franchise, less so for being understated. "There's horror, sci-fi, suspense. It's kind of James Patterson meets Stephen King meets Michael Crichton. It's a scary fable."

    WASHINGTON (CBS/AP) — A Supreme Court ruling due in late June could wipe out health insurance for millions of people covered by the president’s health care law. But it is Republicans — and not White House officials — who are talking about damage control. If that sounds wrong, check the math.

    The Chiricahua Community Health Center’s mobile clinic has been a boon for the region in recent years since it’s designed to treat rural and low income areas like those found in Cochise County. The clincs are empowered by grants from the national Children’s Health Fund, which made possible the story that NBC News will tell the world this week about Buena rising sophomore Efrain Gonzalez II. The mobile clinic treats Gonzalez for Type 1 Diabetes, which allows him to backpaddle into pass coverage just like any other defender in one of the Colts’ last football practices of the school year.

    Reading the Left’s fevered desires over at Slate isn’t anything new. Not even articles breathlessly titled and subtitled: Go for the Throat! Why if he wants to transform American politics, Obama must declare war on the Republican Party. Not even articles that read: The president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about bipartisanship and cooperation can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP. If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat. … Obama’s only remaining option is to pulverize. Whether he succeeds in passing legislation or not, given his ambitions, his...

    CBS has renewed 15 of its series for next season — but missing from the list is long-running crime procedural “CSI.” The network has not confirmed the fate of the franchise flagship, and may opt to end the Ted Danson series with a TV movie rather than a 16th season, according to reports.

    I ran across this heavily edited article at USA Today written by Susan Page.  In it, she reports a new book coming out by a man she describes as having a "33-year career with the CIA."  This man is Michael Morell who praises Barack Obama as "extremely thorough" but claims that Governor Palin had "no understanding of national security issues" back when he claims to have met her in 2008. Everything from the headline to the image Susan Page uses indicates who the USA Today writer was interested in spotlighting.  (Yep, Governor Palin remains the left’s ultimate bogeyman).  Furthermore, when one digs a tad...
